    Another great post to help us keep a healthy back. I am going to try the deep tissue wheel. I sit at a desk morning and night, and my back can be very painful. Well, right now it’s killing me. So, I’m going to give the 6 inch wheel a try. Thanks again for another excellent post.

    I got the deep tissue wheel. This has really helped my back pain and tension. I also noticed that I started breathing easier and better. It would seem that strained back muscles can interfere with good breathing. Here is another bonus: I find that because I’m breathing better I’m less anxious.

    • Hi Allison,
      You make an excellent point about the breathing. Numerous studies have shown that good breathing techniques can help manage anxiety. And part of ensuring good breathing is to have healthy back.

    This works so much better than just a foam roller. It concentrates on areas the roller doesn’t. That said, be warned that it takes time to get used to it. In fact, the first week you’re going to be sore and you might want to toss the wheels. However, after about two weeks the pain will be replaced by a nice soothing feeling like you get from a massage. Awesome videos, bye the way. They really enhanced your presentation.

    • HI Ellena,
      There’s a lot to be said for good foam rollers and I still recommend them for some people who may find the wheels too hard. That said, you’re right. These wheels seem to be more effective than traditional foam rollers. Thanks for checking in.

    Nice review. I think this is an excellent tool to help keep one’s back healthy in between visits to the chiropractor. A lot of times there can be long waits between visits with your chiropractor. Meanwhile, you lose ground on any improvements you made. This would seem to be a great tool to maintain the health of your back.

    • Hi Latoya,
      you make a great point. I wouldn’t say it replaces a good adjustment from a chiropractor. However, a lot of people find that it does do an amazing job for stretching their back out. This really comes into play if you sit all day and suffer from back pain as a result. You don’t have to be miserable waiting for the chiropractor to see you. Thanks for checking in.

    Thanks so much for your helpful review of the Plexus Wheels+ set. From what you say, I think the 10 inch wheel would be perfect for me because I’m 5’1. I think I’ll give that one a try.

    • Hi Margaret,
      I would use the 10 inch wheel as the foundation for your workout, but remember that the 6 inch wheel is for all sizes and that is especially good for deep tissue massage. So, I would also incorporate the smaller wheel—particularly if you’re spending many hours sitting— into your routine to relieve back pain. Thanks for checking in. Keep me in the loop about how the wheels work for you.

    These wheels work great. I bought the three pack. I have to say that the smallest, deep tissue is my favorite for relieving stress. It’s also wonderful for correcting posture–especially for someone like me who spends 90% of their time sitting. The big one is great for stretching. I would just say get all three of them. If I’m not mistaken the company gives you a 100 day trial period.

    • Hi Katherine,
      You’re right. Chirp, makers of the three pack plexus wheel+, gives a 100 day trial and a 10 year warranty. I think this shows a lot of confidence in their product. Thanks for checking in.

    love it. More specifically, I love the 6″ Deep Tissue Plexus Wheel!!! It did wonders for my back and got rid of my posture problems. I’m so impressed that you’re spending the word about this product even though you’re not an affiliate. This shows that you really care about your readers. keep up the good work, Thabo.

    I was pleasantly surprised. This isn’t hype. it really stretches you out. my back feels so much better and stronger. Thanks for this excellent review of the Plexus Wheel+. I also appreciate the fact that you went to the trouble of showing how the different size wheels work for specific back related problems. Nice videos. Great job overall.

    Thanks for this great review of the Plexus Wheel+ . The fact is that I use all 3 of these wheels for stretching exercises, and I have the smallest one almost always against the back on my work chair. Yes, I use it just like the lady on the video. It forces you to have good posture. Overall, these wheels are very effective in treating low back pain without having to use an expansive masseuse.

    • Hello Jeannine,
      On the other hand, it’s just like having a masseuse at home. And I agree with you about using the 6″ wheel for your posture. It’s a very effective and easy way of maintaining correct posture at all times–especially when you’re tired. Thanks for for checking in.

    I’m 5’6 (with a pretty inflexible upper back/shoulders) and love my standard 12” Plexus Wheel+ from Chrip – affordable and came with a fun “how to use” guide. Also, I liked starting with the standard size and working my way down to a smaller size, but of course you can go the other way. Anyway, thanks for this review. I found it interesting and very helpful.

    • Thank you, Angus for your testimony. I’m glad the Plexus Wheel+ worked well for you. I think this is an amazing product, and thanks for mentioning the guide. I agree with you that it’s very helpful in making one understand the best ways to use the wheels. Thanks for checking in.

    Thanks for this. I just got a set of plexus wheels a my birthday. However, I didn’t know the best way to use it. After reading your posts and watching the very helpful videos, I now know how to use the wheels.Yeah!

    I’m back! You really have some nice posts on your website. Glad I found you. Any way, I’m someone who spends a lot of time sitting at my desk. So, of course my posture after suffers after awhile and my back hurts. The fact that the average American will spend 8, 760 hours with back pain this year sure caught my attention. The 6-inch Micro Wheel would work well for me as it is designed for deep-tissue pressure and correcting the posture. Very good videos and images. They enhanced your post and kept things moving. You had a lot of information but it was easy to hold my interest because the post was intelligent and also visually appealing.

    • Hello Yvette,
      Thanks so much for coming back to the website to check another post. I’m glad you liked the videos and images. I think most of us, myself included, enjoy posts more when they are backed up by interesting and relevant visuals. Getting back to your case, Yes I thing the 6–inch Plexus Wheel+ would be ideal for correcting and maintaining good posture. give it a try and let me know what you think.
